E-Learning organisers prefer to disseminate their message as widely as possible, and in the same time authorised people only can access some disseminative information. It becomes a challenge to protect the digital message from access such as reading and updating which has been disseminated out from the organisations.

The paper aims to substantially provide a foundation for developing appropriate security solutions for organizations’ secure dissemination of digital information. An application-level secure architecture is developed based on the references on both of server-side and client-side. The architecture provides control and tracking capabilities for dissemination and usage of digital information while others provide only tracking capability. The outcomes of this paper can immediately apply to prevent unauthorized dissemination of digital content amongst agents of universities regardless of their intention or possession of the digital information and will contribute to higher security in E-Learning.
